We were exhausted from our day at Acadia National Park and wanted takeout. We ordered a pizza and Cesar salad to go. The pizza is cooked in a wood burning stove. The crust of the pizza was delicious. The Cesar was also very good.

Reviews posted four or higher always make me cautious. They have an extensive beer selection that was very good. The variety of appetizers was excellent. The crabcake seemed to actually be homemade and not something frozen. And it actually tasted like crab. Duck fat fries were also tasty. We ordered tacos. Jamaican tacos and pulled pork. Both very tasty with... More

With just a handful of restaurants open in the winter in Bar Harbor it was so nice to see Blaze open early April. Since their opening we have dined there three times! It is delicious! The staff is so friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxing. I highly recommend the fig and proscuitto pizza, so delicious. We also have tried... More

Though I have to admit I've had nothing but great food since I arrived on the island, the this place is exceptional. The pork lollipops cooked over the wood grill aren't healthy, but they might be the most delicious thing I ever ate.

I had Risotto with lobster and scallops upon the recommendation of our warm and accommodating waiter, Matt. I don't usually like Risotto, maybe because i judge Risotto on my own creations, but this was loaded with seafood and had an appealing texture and good seasonong that did not overpower the seafood. Before that, my partner and I shared a beet-goat... More

We sat outside even though it was only around 40 degrees out. Their heat lamps worked well, though, and we stayed warm. The delicious beer helped, too! Our server was very attentive and friendly, and the food was pretty good. We had house salads and the neopolitan pizza, which were both good. If we're ever in the area again, I... More

Enjoyed oysters on the half, bloody marys and pizza. It's a casual and fun place, we dined outdoors under the patio heaters, so cozy. The waitstaff was super friendly and their recommendations were spot on. We'll be back!

We arrived late for our first night in Bar Harbor and decided to try a restaurant near our hotel. Blaze was crowded, but we were able to find a small table in the front corner next to the bar. Our server was friendly and helped us navigate their menu. We settled on a pizza that was truly excellent. Located right... More

On night one of our stay at Bar Harbor, we went into Blaze for some dinner. There were no open tables except for a two person table that was situated in the middle of the restaurant - seemed like an afterthought. We left because we didn't want to sit in the middle of the restaurant. We returned the next night... More

My wife, a connoisseur of fish tacos, said these were the best she's had. Her caveat - they were a bit spicy and very messy...but totally worth it! I had the chorizo manzana pizza and it was delicious. I was hesitant to order it because it had so many different flavors, but it turned out great. The atmosphere was more... More
